    I always gets 0800 numbers calling me around 5pm or 6pm each night. Usually I never answer 0800 numbers or any number that I don't know.

    However, today I finally got annoyed and answered to finally tell them to eff off. Guess what? They hung up as soon as I answered? Is this some kind of joke or what? :rolleyes:

    Are they just trying to see if I answer my phone?

    I Googled the two numbers that always call me, and both of them are the AA, and it seems they do it to a lot of people.

    I don't think I can block a number on my BlackBerry (it says 'blocking not available') so what else can I do?

    I do not currently have AA Car Insurance, although I do have Breakdown Cover with them and recently called them out to fix my car. I presume this is why they are phoning me now, to see if I want to switch everything over to them.

    The answer is NO! And if I do not stop getting these calls then I will cease my breakdown cover with them too.

    So tell them! :lol:

    EDIT: Are there no decent blacklist apps on app world? iOS and Android usually have tons of them.

    Does it cost money to ANSWER 0800 numbers on your mobile?

    I emailed their customer service team this afternoon with a very angry email and I told them to remove me from their call list.

    They emailed me back and said they have removed my number, so hopefully that's the end of it now.

    But we shall see.
